Baby Owls

I haven’t actually seen baby owls since we took the S.A.L.G. to a bird of prey sanctuary a year or so ago but I was looking at the photos we took and wanted to draw them because we’ve got a beautiful Tawny owl that sits up in the roof at the side of the house to cough up owl pellets. It flaps off every time we come round the corner so is difficult to see properly.The cats sniff hopefully under its perch thinking it might have dropped something interesting.  They did strike lucky the day it had dropped a mouse there but that’s about the best so far. I think it’s probably the ghost that slips past in the evening and early morning to the neighbour’s barn but it definitely isn’t the Barn owl we see most nights. Anyway the baby owls are such lovely little things that I drew them. I used watercolours and pastels.
